It's a bit difficult to verbalize just how exquisite the care has been here at VCAT, and I chose that word quite intentionally. From the first phone call, all throughout the intake process, it's been so lovely. Eliot was an angel as he helped me through the final few paperwork details and signatures.
Then came my initial consultation with Dr. Wolfsohn. Her warmth and kindness was almost palpable! Even though we both wore masks (hello pandemic) I could feel her gentle, caring energy. What a sweet and genuine doctor. Our interview was thorough, thoughtful, comfortable, safe and so informative. Dr. Wolfsohn was an open book and took all the time needed to answer and explain things that some doctors seem less than thrilled to bother with.
After a lifetime of doctors, meds, dozens of surgeries, meds, hospitals and more doctors, I've become very knowledgeable about my conditions and she was so willing and ABLE to cover of every detail with me. I never got that "why are you questioning me" feeling that some specialists give off since they're the doctor and you're not. She was just so right on. It's a rare gem of a Dr that shares their knowledge with you in a way that brings you in closer like that.
With my blessing of course, she has communicated with my other Dr's and brought them onto the team in a way that has left them so impressed and excited for me as we start this journey!
One session down. I couldn't have hoped for a better first experience. I had no negative or "scary" moments at all which was a pure joy to experience. I was a little nervous going in of course, something new is always a little scary I think, but I came away feeling nothing but hope and looking forward to the journey! One session doesn't qualify me to say much yet but, wow. I can't believe how blessed I feel to have found Dr. Wolfsohn.
The few days since my first infusion have been peaceful and quiet in a way I've never experienced before in all the years of my life. That frenetic, depression and anxiety induced noise in my head is gone and it's all... Just. Blissful. Silence.
On to session two! Thank you Dr. Wolfsohn and all staff members. This is a new and exciting time, thank you for the beautiful, exquisite care you give your patients.
